I stripped the prepainted statue and repositioned the arms and the fingers. Beneath the factory colour a lot of details were hidden. The paintwork is done with a lot of brown, green and blue washes and thin layers of white sprayed with an airbrush. The guy is rather big (45 cm) and heavy.

Thank you for your comments. :D

Painting this beauty was very satisfying.

Removing the dome wasn't easy but I was very careful and worked in little steps.

Don't know how I managed to miss this when you posted #-o

Wonderful work Karl - REALLY nice! :bow: =D> =D> =D> :hot:

Has a great "metallic" look to it - totally suits the sculpt & character.

You are not the first to attempt the dome removal & repaint - there are at least 3 other Clubhouse members that have done the same. Did you search here to save yourself some pain or just wing it?
